Movie of the year? Yup, movie of the year. Pretty sure there won't be another movie this year which is as fucking grim, as fucking intense, as fucking shocking as this one.
Even worse than other unnecessary 2018 sequels à la "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom", "Pacific Rim: Uprising" or "Insidous: The Last Key".
Without Emily Blunt, Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins and Jóhann Jóhannsson (R.I.P), this ends up being nothing more than a shitty and completely unnecessary afterthought.
And even though Del Toro and Brolin give good performances, they aren't able to save this from being a frustrating stinker. Avoid!
This feels like it was made in 2009, you know, the year where lots of backwoods/hillbilly, um, 'classics' like "Albino Farm", "Staunton Hill" or the unwatchable "Wrong Turn 3" were released.
I'm a huge fan of directors Maury & Bustillo, love all of their films, I adore "Inside" and "Livid", and, yes, love even the mismarketed and slightly misunderstood "Among the Living", as well as their segment for "ABCs of Death 2".
